You use the same formula as you would on earth. If the gravitational acceleration is g, then the formula for height is y= (-g/2)t^2+ vt where v is the initial velocity of the jump. You can find the maximum value of y, perhaps by completing the square, to be v

If, by "a gravity that is greater than earth", you already know the acceleration due to gravity on this other planet, just use that for g. If, instead, you only know the mass and radius of the planet, you have a little more work to do.

If the planet has mass M and radius R, the acceleration due to gravity, at the surface of the planet is g= GM/R
